The "P" in our name represents Preschool and "20" stands for grade 20, education after college.

Join a working group
In the fall of 2022, the P-20 Council launched two new project-based working groups (PBWGs) . Each group will spend several months working on developing recommendations to address specific issues within the field. The first two PBWGs are focused on Strengthening the Teacher Pipeline and Scaling K-12 Computer Science. Interested in joining one of our working groups?
